Popular Telugu actor Vijay Deverakonda recently interacted with a group of police officers in Hyderabad. He also interacted with the police officers via video conferencing and appreciated their efforts during the lockdown. He then shared a long post on Facebook to salute their work. Read below:
“What I have seen the Police doing for us..
They are each doing 12 hour shifts, from the home guards to the commissioners. They are guarding the streets. They are ensuring essential supplies and providers have all what they need. They are doing investigative work, contact tracing and breaking possible infection chains. The 100 helpline is active 24×7 and the stories behind the help being provided are absolutely heart warming.
While their families worry about their safety, they are out there doing more than their duties in this fight against one of the greatest wars – Covid-19.
In view of the extended lockdown I was called upon by the Hyderabad City Police to interact, lift the spirits and bring a smile on the faces of our field officers (constables and home guards are doing the hardest and most demanding jobs).. and I returned with them bringing a smile onto my face, they even made me little advance birthday notes.
We need our police force to stay strong and healthy and lead us in this battle. They had only one request – please ask our people to co-operate with us. I promised them we would. I want you all to help our doctors, police and government by staying home and staying healthy.”
During the interaction Vijay wore a mask and even maintained social distance while clicking pictures with some senior officials.
On the work front, Vijay will be next seen in a Bollywood film titled ‘Fighter’ alongside Ananya Panday. The film will be directed by Puri Jagannath.
